In many cases, Schall & Russo Planning Works conducts its searches in connection with its start-up consulting for new organizations and programs. We devote substantial up-front time with the client and key stakeholders to: understand the organization and its growth; clarify the challenges and opportunities presented by the position; and develop a clear, concise and inspiring job announcement. Next, we map out a plan with the client for candidate review and screening, interviews and reference checks.

We use our extensive professional network in the non-profit, government and private sectors, as well as clients’ key contacts, to zero in on the most qualified candidates. In addition, for each search we evaluate the use of targeted electronic and/or print media. We conduct our work with the utmost attention to confidentiality, as potential candidates may not currently be in the job market.
